Graduate of the Month

Surekha Nielsen - July 2022

Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy


After qualifying as a Herbalist and Naturopath 20 years ago I then worked in private clinic environments as well as the health food industry coming across many people who had imbalances in their musculoskeletal systems
I always knew the incredible benefits that manual therapy has on the body from clients I had referred to a chiropractor or a massage therapist. That's when I decided to train as a sports massage therapist. After completing my level 3 diploma my interest in sports massage grew and I decided to take the level 4 & Kinesiology Taping courses with the Sports Massage Academy

How have you used your new qualification?

Since qualifying I started working for East Dorset Dockers Rugby Club as a pitch side first aider and massage therapist, it's amazing and inspiring to see the effects massage is having on the players & their performance. I have also set up my own business, Niramaya in Bournemouth, where I combine my Herbal and massage knowledge taking a Naturopathic approach to sports massage, including making my own herbal infused sports mediums and massage balms

What did you think of the Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy course you attended?

The Sports Massage Academy course was very detailed and informative. The tutors were always for any extra support or help at all times. After completing the level 4 I went straight on to the Kinesiology Taping course. The support & knowledge that is provided through the Alumni Group on completion of the course is second to none
